February is #BlackHistoryMonth in the US and Canada — an important time to #TakeUpSpace, celebrate, and get inspired by the black community on Twitter. In 2021, there were 2 million Tweets about Black History Month in the US.1
The Black History Month conversation is happening on Twitter – celebrations of culture, community, and #BlackExcellence are happening each day. People are joining the conversation to reflect on black history and to honor those who have impacted their lives and their community.
We want to shine a light on some amazing Twitter accounts you should follow to celebrate #BlackOwnedBusiness and #BlackCreatives every day, all year round.
We’ve teamed up with our business resource group @BlackBirds to honor some of the inspiring accounts you need to follow today.
